Kochi: A woman passenger stopped a KSRTC bus that inched forward on its own without the driver on seat. The incident happened on Thursday around 8.30 am at Ernakulam KSRTC stand. A huge mishap was averted with the timely intervention of Kaloor native Reshna Arun.

Reshna boarded the bus to go to her boutique in Thuravoor. She was sitting in the front seat when the bus began to move on its own. While the other passengers were shrieking out in panic, Reshna rushed to the driver’s seat and set foot on the brake.

Reshna said she does'nt know even to drive a car. However, she had watched her husband Arun driving and recollected the ABC (Accelerator, Brake and Clutch) technique he taught and stopped the bus.
